Christian Stewardship is the responsible use of our individual talents and gifts. At St. Ann’s, we use these gifts to serve our community through an active Outreach Program, and the preservation of this historic property for the enjoyment of all who worship and visit St. Ann's. The ministry of our summer chapel is sustained through the generosity of friends and visitors. Please consider becoming active in and supporting St. Ann’s.
Annual Giving Program
All who worship at St. Ann’s are invited to support the church through an annual gift. These gifts are the primary source of funding, along with free offerings at our worship services and donations for weddings celebrated here. Since the Annual Giving Program began approximately a decade ago, we have been able to move steadily towards our goal of closing the gap between funds raised and actual expenses. Your annual gift is greatly appreciated and aids our Vestry in planning.

Several years ago St. Ann’s completed a $1.5 million capital campaign to restore the stone chapel and rectory. However, life on the seacoast is rugged and significant maintenance is required each year. Your gift to the Preservation Endowment will help to ensure that future generations will worship God and celebrate life at this unique setting.

Planning for the future will enable St. Ann’s to protect the recent investment made in the restoration of the chapel and grounds and ensure their enjoyment for years to come. Please consider a gift through your estate plan that will provide support in the years ahead for St. Ann’s.

Flowers, Gardens, Benches, and Other Memorial Gifts
The altar flowers each Sunday, as well as the beautiful gardens are made possible through Memorial Gifts and Gifts of Thanksgiving. Those remembered or honored by such gifts are recognized in the Sunday prayers. The benches in the outdoor chapel are also made possible through Memorial Gifts.

There are many gifts that would enhance the beauty of St. Ann’s or enable more efficient operation which can not be accommodated within our current budget. This is a wonderful opportunity to make a special contribution in honor of a loved one, to commemorate a special occasion, or simply for the joy of giving. Wish list to be updated in the winter of 2016.
